For more than two decades, I’ve written, edited and marketed professionally in the newspaper, nuclear, financial and emergency management industries as well as the funeral industry. Most recently, I’ve taken on small business clients who want to grow their business but didn’t have the time, resources or knowledge to move forward.
From understanding the editorial process to publication management and digital content migration; from specialized writing and messaging skills to creating communications strategy, my professional life has provided great flexibility in enhancing my appreciation for learning on the fly. Turning jargon into readable words that connects with the audience is my passion. With each experience, I sharpen key cross-industry skills, such as writing, editing, production and information gathering through interviews and leadership meetings, as well as the soft skills of collaboration, editorial judgment, problem solving and relationship building.
